SENIOR STORIES

"I have gained so much experience as a teacher and have a new perspective on how languages can be taught in such fun, interactive ways."

Sydney Garvis'18

"I decided to do SITES for a few reasons - to be able to use my Spanish speaking abilities outside of the classroom, to be able to interact with the Oberlin community, and to be able to interact with kids - and SITES is an awesome combination of all three of these!  Through SITES, I feel like I have gained a tremendous amount of confidence in my teaching abilities and my ability to plan and execute entertaining lessons."

Elka Rubin'18

It is no coincidence that many former SITES instructors go on to successfully apply for grants and fellowships (Fulbright, Watson, etc.) and education-related graduate studies. The skills they learn through SITES are instrumental to their success as educators post-Oberlin and the breadth of opportunities available to them within the field.
